Posted: Updated:

Upper Allen Township police have charged five 19-year-olds in connection with a bottle bomb incident at Messiah College back in April.  All five are students at the college, police said.

Police said they've charged Kelsey Hare of Connecticut, Andrew MacAdams of New Jersey, Maxwell Brown of New York, Michael Scibilio of Massachusetts, and Daniel Giampiero of Maryland with disorderly conduct.

Police said all five admitted to making the bottle bombs. Two of the bombs exploded outside of a dorm. Police found two other devices there, as well as two more near the main campus entrance.

Police said the students heard about how to make the bombs and "thought it would be funny."

No one was hurt.
